    This little red hen is unusual. I am not sure of the mixture. See the nice feathers on the feet.

    Then this guy. He is so pretty. I am thinking Hamburg?

    I have no clue on these grey guys.

    I am thinking araucana?

    This black hen is so gentle. She follows me around at the barn.

    I can't see the pics too well, but will try...
    1-buff cochin x silkie
    2-silver spangled hamburg
    3-blue andalusian
    4-the one you are calling araucana, does it have muff/beard? can't tell the pic is too small...
    5-australorp? color of the bottom of her feet..if white australorp, if yellow she could be a Jersey Giant
    6-sumatra pullet

    Pics 1-3: no idea
    #4 - easter egger - It looks like she has a pea comb, muffs/beard, and slate legs - also the feather pattern around her neck is common to EEs
    #5 - Are you sure it's a hen?
    #6 pullet - black australorp??

    #5 is a roo....Big comb, has saddle feathers, and the tail screams roo. Not all roos have spurs. I have a roo that is over a year old and he has never crowed. I don't think he knows how. He is an EE tho.

    1)pretty cool buff cochin/silkie cross, probably slightly more cochin than silkie
    2)Silver Spangled Hamburg Roo
    3)Andalusian, probably hens.
    4)Looks EE to me. Definitely not Araucana, most likely not Ameraucana
    5)Ummm...that's a pretty obvious roo. He'll get prettier. I would say Austrolorp, because even at that age our Jersey Roos were fleshier.
    6)Definitely a hen. Does she have spurs? If so, are there a lot of them on each foot? Sumatras tend to have a lot of spurs, even on hens. Also, if her comb&wattles stay purplish red I would say Sumatra.
